I'm so happy Brokeback Mountain lost. I'm not a big fan of cowboy films especially one that's about gay cowboys.

I love Brokeback Mountain and I'm so dissapointed and surprised that it did not win the best picture and best actor.

I suspect the academy ain't ready for a gay cowboy film to rule the oscars.

Joaquin Phoenix must be thinking what other roles must he take to win an oscar. I thought he would take the best actor oscar this year after his fabulous potrayal of Johnny Cash in the movie Walk the Line.

I will not watch a gay cowboy film no matter how many good reviews it gets.

We all need surprises. Crash is a good example.

'Brokeback Mountain'. Deserving Oscar winner or otherwise, I have no interest in the subject matter. I guess I will not be watching this one.

Crash IS a good movie and it deserved to win, as much.

And like Mr Chuang I won't be watching this Lee Ang movie, EVER.
